Okay, okay, so we don't need these products, though After using them for a few months, they are now a solid part of our beauty routine. We will be right with you, we thought female hygiene products were a complete waste of time – just a hype to get our money – but after a thorough examination of the subject we will really be on board with all kinds of products! We have tried everything from luminizers and exfoliators (not our faves) to deodorants and VJJ mist – that's one thing! Here are five we really love and can't imagine our routines without:
DeoDoc Intimate Calming Oil, $ 32
This intimate oil is designed to soothe the delicate vulvar skin that can become irritated after exercise, during your time or just after wearing an extremely tight pair of jeans! The blend of natural oils, including chamomile, shea butter and sunflower seed oil, really helps smooth and calm the area and it's good to use before any kind of activity, whether you wear underwear or not (it's not greasy). This is our go before bed.
And if you're worried, the deoDoc range of gynecologists developed to be extra careful, pH-balanced, hypoallergenic and all their products are dermatologically tested. This product should only be used externally.
Queen V Pop The Bubbly Bubble Bath, $ 9
If you are a big fan of soaking in the bath to end a busy day in the office, but you've had too many comforts feeling comfortable in a bathtub full of bubbles, then this is your new best friend! This wonderfully fragrant, moisturizing bubble bath is lightly scented with ethereal scent and is enriched with skin-demanding ingredients such as green tea, chamomile, aloe vera and mango. It bubbles nicely and smells good, and you don't have to worry about irritation because it is pH balanced to be friendly to your queen V.
Deo Doc Daily Intimate Wash, $ 26
This VJJ wash smells so good we would love to use it over our bodies! Specially formulated for your sensitive vulvar skin, this coconut formula is pH balanced, hypoallergenic and paraben free and works to clear the skin of sweat while "preventing bad bacteria that bloom in hot (often tightly dressed!) Environments." The packaging is also so good we would like to include it in our bathroom shelf!
Fur Stubble Cream, $ 38
What we love about Fur is that this brand does not judge; They provide solutions for "shrubs are back" and "skin is in." This stubble cream is here for the fans of the latter category and is designed to hydrate and smooth the skin to prevent ingrown hair after shaving and it can be used to relieve bumps and razor burners. In fact, as well as using this on and around beauty hair, you can use it all over your body, like armpits or legs, and it is designed to soften stubble and help your hair become finer as it grows back.
Vegan, 100% natural formula (without parabens, silicones or artificial fragrance) has hydrating shea butter and jojoba oil rich in vitamins and tea and lavender oil, which are anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal. Best of all, it quickly lowers, and most importantly, it actually works, and we saw a significant reduction in ingrown hairs when using this formula.
DeoDoc Intimate Deowipes, $ 19
Okay, so it's a little expensive considering you only get 10 in a box, but we love these super soft, individually wrapped cloths. Each tastes coconuts and is saturated with moisturizing olive oil, aloe vera and vitamin E to effectively cleanse, soothe and leave the skin of the vulvar calm and healthy. So even though we know our vagina is not supposed to smell like a coconut (as a gyno once told us, "vaginas are meant to smell like vagins, not roses"), we still don't think it is done after these cloths.
For a more affordable version of these napkins, check out the Queen V Swipe Right pH-Balanced Feminine Wipes, $ 7, which also smells like coconuts! Although these will not be individually wrapped, you will get 32 cloths, so they are perfect to keep at home when you want to freshen up.
